"The Lone Ranger"- Trailer

I'm not going to lie- I'm kind of weary of Johnny Depp's endless parade of costumes and make-up. But I figured I'd watch the trailer with an open mind-- and I'm still not sold. It's very stylized looking and I'm betting the movie will be long on special effects and short on storytelling.

oh wow, thanks for sharing! I hadn't known that the trailer was out yet, but it looks pretty good so far!

I couldn't agree more! He may be a good actor, but one cannot really see that behind all those costumes. Is it really that hard to play a character when you are hiding behind all that? I think it must be much more difficult to play an "ordinary" character!

Never really was a fan of the Lone Ranger anyway so I doubt I'll bother with this.

I love the TV show when I was a kid the trailer is great until you see Helena Bonham Carter and Johnny Depp...Oh well

@Pandaora- That's what I think. When you don't have costumes and mannerisms to hide behind you have to be compelling on your own.

@Shadow Falcon- I liked The Lone Ranger too, but this seems so far off the show I remember. It could be good, but it looks too showy to have much in the way of plot or good acting.

Johnny is too good of an actor to continue acting in these senseless films - I can't even stand for anyone to talk about the dreaded "pirate" movies anymore. I would really like him to just going back to regular acting like he did in Public Enemies, Finding Neverland, Chocolat or even Sleepy Hollow - oh and I just saw that there is going to be yet another pirate movie...god help me!
